Businesses in the Fruit and Vegetable Retailers industry sell fresh and preserved fruits and vegetables in specialised stores. The industry has faced a growing amount of competition from supermarkets over the past five years. Large chain stores such as Tesco and Sainsbury's continue to add to their growing range of fresh produce in pursuit of satisfying as many consumers' needs as possible. In line with this, consumers are choosing the convenience of supermarkets over specialised retailers and industry revenue has suffered as a result. Over the five years through 2014-15, revenue is estimated to decline at a compound annual rate of 2.3% to reach £1 billion.
Companies in this industry specialise in the sale of fresh fruit and vegetables or prepared and preserved fruit and vegetables.
